Same here. I think it may be an issue with the APK Edit tool. I can recreate the issue by opening the AndroidManifest.xml file, saving it without making any changes, then clicking Apply. i'm going to post about it in the APK Edit thread. The error is below:

I: Checking whether resources has changed...
I: Building resources...

Here's a Spotify APK i built to work in landscape, although it's only version 0.4.08. I can't find out why the latest version wont install and i got no time to learn xml atm :P

Download the apk here: I cant post outside links yet :S Check the attachment instead for the APK.

Well, I quickly compared the 2 spotify versions (old one and new one). The new one's xml manifest is encrypted (see

Basically, there's no need for apktool at all. All you need, is
- rename the apk file to zip
- change AndroidManifest.xml according to the first post
- update the zip and rename it to apk !

But there's the fact that the .zip is encrypted. I didn't manage to make this apktool work for now.

Long since I was in this thread. I tried to make this edit to a newer ver a couple of moths ago but failed. Still using the old one.
Keep up the work!

The manifest isn't encrypted, it's a just in binary format. Here's the manifest in txt form. If you can tell me what needs to be changed I should be able to edit and then recompile back to binary form.

I don't know if people are still out there looking for this, but I modded the newsest of Spotify version so I figured I'd share it. It seems to work great out of the box, so I can't for the life of me imagine why they restrict it in the first place.

No outside links for me so it's attached.

Nice nice

But i have a request if someone know how to change the play/pause and skip track buttons to smaller on landscape, so you see more of the cover from the artist.

The preview version of Spotify released today has a much different manifest file. I suspect the next released version will not work with this fix. I've attached the latest manifest in text format.
